Some of the castles...

Tuscany is one of Italy's world famous regions. Tuscany, with its enchanted landscapes from the mountain to the sea. Tuscany, with its towns with museums, cathedrals, historical buildings, streets and places like Florence, Siena, Pisa and more. Tuscany, full of ancient Etruscan and Roman ruins. But one can not pass through this land without being aware of Medieval Tuscany. Still visible are the little walled towns which are a testimony to the Middle Ages just as the great cities. Castles, fortresses, watch-towers, town walls, appear everywhere; some are well preserved, others in ruins, but the main ones are not on the tourist routes. In this site, created to let people know of the existence and preservation state these testimonies to the medieval era, you will find history, photos and when possible plans of some of this fortifications. If you have a medieval related site don't forget to apply for the 'Web Knight Award for Excellence'. Welcome!
